told to shelter in place, as you well know. and as a result of this, law enforcement authorities are very hopeful that they will be able to conclude their search by going door to door. last check, they had about 70% of that accomplished. we're still waiting for an afternoon briefing. we don't know when that will occur. but in the early morning briefing, they did say there were new developments they were trying to run down and firm up and they would bring us those at the afternoon briefing. of course, as you know, things are changing quite rapidly and as a result of that, that briefing may get pushed back once again. so, that's what we know at this point. and they came, the suspects, as you know, came from an area in russia quite close to chechnya. we are still translating those tapes that we got from the father, an interview that he did with reuters. it's in russian, we're translating it. a number of the family members have been speaking out with very diverse opinions on this whole situation. so we're working on those, we'll bring them to you when we have them. maria and andrew,

to finally get an official briefing from law enforcement, as bill said, that will come roughly around the top of the hour. and the plan is that it will be all law enforcement. the previous briefings have included the governor and the mayor. this is now sort of getting down to business, and it is widely anticipated that we will probably see some pictures of people of interest, that they captured on video at the time of the explosions on monday afternoon. that's part of the whole process of healing this city, healing our city was the theme of the remembrances today in boston, culminating in an hour and 15-minute long memorial service, interfaith service, at the cathedral of the holy cross. president obama speaking and delivering a message of renewal. >> this time next year, on the third monday in april, the world will return to this great american city, to run harder than ever and to cheer even louder, for the 118th boston r marathon. >> reporter: the president is now back in washington, and in washington on capitol hill, a couple of top law enforcement officials testifying about the budget f

on cnbc, to bring you the very latest. >> in the meantime, as law enforcement officials get set for that news conference at the top of the hour, amid premature reports that an arrest had been made in the marathon bombing, scott cohn is in boston with the very latest details for us. scott? >> good afternoon, bill. let's first get you up to date on the situation at the federal courthouse, which is about two miles from here. as you said, there was a bomb threat an hour or so ago, unrelated to the situation at the bottom marathon and the attacks there. our producer on the scene says that he has seen fire trucks enter the area, firefighters go into the building, agents with dogs go into the building, but notably, no bomb squad going into the building. obviously, the vast majority of bomb threats phoned in anywhere turn out to be false and we'll hope that that is the case. and here's how the day sort of plaid out. early in the morning, or i should say, with around mid-morning, on boyle boylston street, we saw quite a bit of activity, agents combing the area. perhaps they're combing it

, iranian, north korean, you name it, we simply can't treat it as a law enforcement issue, where we have to prove the involvement of the president of the country or the dictator. we've got to make sure we understand these are acts of war if they're foreign inspired. but we won't know that until this forensic and evidential process has been completed. >> well, they say that they did a bomb sweep, right before the race. how foolproof are those bomb sweeps? and i mean, how is it possible that garbage cans were around as well? didn't we get rid of garbage cans for this very reason? >> well, you know, we'll find out more. the boston police are first rate. i know these big events are all scrutinized very closely. certainly, the brits understood, you've got to get rid of public trash cans. but i think, look, maria, it's astonishing to me that we haven't had this happen four times a year since 2007. mostly, it's a credit to local law enforcement. and by the way, we ought to add, thank god for the fbi and the cia, running both foreign and domestic counterterrorism operations. this open, free soci
